Column on climate change was short on information

I looked forward to Harold Vanderpool’s guest column on climate change and global warming (“The ideology of climate change,” Daily News, April 10), hoping to find a considered and reasoned discussion of this issue.

For example: What does the scientific literature say about this phenomenon?

How do climate scientists interpret and evaluate this data?

How should we assess the relative risks associated with this, and what response should society take or not take?

Instead, I found a diatribe, short on facts and long on loose association.

In addition, we got the timeworn gimmick of accusing those with whom you disagree of ideological bias, while ignoring your own.

Surely, the good doctor can do better than this.
